a snowy new york at the nasdaq. kevin, why shy away from rapidly growing companies in this environment? >> well, i think what you're seeing is a slow-down in earnings growth. but on the other hand, the economy is doing somewhat better than it was, let's say six months ago. so investors who come into the year looking for very fast earnings growth as justification for their stock prices may be somewhat disappointed. so the economy is getting a little bit better, but wave come out of the recession. we've had a full recovery in profits, so here, going forward, we expect to see slower growth and consistency, i think, is the key in that kind of environment. >> tom: you mentioned a full recovery in profits. are stocks, broadly speaking, at this level expensive given the lack of earnings growth that you forecast? >> i don't think they're either expensive or cheap. and the reason i say that is because the standard & poors 500, which is a proxy for the stock market, has about $100 of earnings expected underneath it and it trades at $1500. with the stock market trading at 15 times underlying earn

's the only choice they have for a slightly safer environment than the kids may face in the public schools that exist in their neighborhoods. but also catholic schools had been for decades the feeders of our communities to higher education. the statistics are unassailable. kids who go to catholic schools tend, a, to graduate from high school and many of our communities have disasters high school dropout rates. that's already an accomplishment. and second many of us feed into colleges thereafter. and the discipline lets us finish college as well. so i'm heartbroken by what's happening. and so sad. i have a personal reason for my sadness because i loved my grammar school and every time i've gone back in recent times to meet the kids they're all just like i was. >> rose: yes, exactly. you went from yale law school where you were an editor of the law review. you went down to new york and became a prosecutor with a legendary prosecutor here, morgenthau. do you think people are cut out to be prosecutors? >> oh, what an interesting question! there are some people and i have some friends who didn'

have seen the militarization of the border impact their businesses. it's impacted the environment. and so i feel that from a political perspective, there's going to be a very interesting dialogue going on between the president and his administration and those that are pushing for more enforcement, when as we have discussed tonight, this is a president who has already deported over 1 million people. so i think that's just going to be a nonstarter for a lot of folks. >> really quickly, emil, what do you think is the wiggle room? >> i don't know if there's much wiggle room. for example, conservatives are already saying nonstarter on pathway to citizenship and growers are demanding to see a bacero program. if that's there, you're going to have the afl-cio, big labor down on president obama's neck. >> he did have senator mccain saying that we need to have the pathway to citizenship. >> but the point is that you have a bipartisan -- a very fragile bipartisan debate and it all blows up very easily. if we can go into a rancorous debate similar to what we had in 1994 with 187. >> as you ca

the planet. africa is increasingly a drone base environment. a newly authorized site in the nation of niger will become the sixth u.s. drone base in africa, joining one in morocco, senegal, uganda, and a permanent one in djibouti. u.s. drone attacks ordered by obama have spiked particularly in yemen, somalia, afghanistan, and notably pakistan where over 360 drone strikes over the nine years, 2004 to 2013, have killed over 3,000 people. this data is not classified. and not even secret. but it is troubling. so troubling that the u.n. has just decided to launch an investigation on the impacts of drone strikes on thousands of civilians. question. will the u.n. human rights council rule that drone use violates international law do you think, pat buchanan? >> i don't think they l. if they do, john, it doesn't make any difference. but we really ought to be concerned about these drones. they're a tremendously effective weapon. they save our pilots and the rest of it. but the collateral damage, the killing of civilians, the killing of children, the tremendous alienation they've increased all over th

environment. i was looking back at the vote to ban assault weapons in 1994. back then you had 46 republicans who supported that ban. that's a remarkable thing. in this day and age you get 46 republicans to support president obama on anything, even if it was i love cookies day they wouldn't support it. so those republicans are gone. moderate democrats are gone. the pl president knows that in order to get something done in congress he's going to have to centrally be able to push it through whether there's an executive order or the only thing that will pass is something that republicanss can support because republicans are the ones who control congress. at the end of the day here's what i think is somewhat interesting. for republicans in congress these issues, guns and immigration, make them a stronger national party in the future because it helps them do better that mitt romney did very poorly: suburban moderate women voters and hispanics. yet if you're going to be elected as a republican in congress you really are not looking at that group of voters you're more worried about losing a primary

the catholic church a safe environment for children. remember the first pope to meet with victims of sex abuse which he did for the first time in the united states in april 2008 and did six times total over the course of his papacy, the first pope to apologize directly for the crisis to institute zero tolerance as the official policy of the church. critics will say much of that was too little too late. too much was left undone but that of course is not the only issue that people will remember about this pope. many liberals in the catholic church, for example, would praise him on some fronts but suggest overall his leadership rolled back the clock on the reforming spirit of the second vatican council in the mid 1960s. many women particularly religious women in the united states, nuns, will remember the crackdowns on american nuns that unfolded on his watch. while his admirers, i submit, will probably remember him as one of the great teaching popes of modern times perhaps of all time who for almost eight years led a sort of global graduate seminar about the relationship between reason and faith
